About The Workshop

Gubns partners with London’s biggest professional makerspace, Bloqs, to host their first metal workshop as part of the London Design Festival and Open House Festival. The workshop will be guided by Gubns member Aimilios (‘Emil’) Davlantis Lo, a London-based Architect, Machinist and Mechanical Workshop Engineer at UCL’s High Precision Design and Fabrication Facility.

Prior to the workshop, Bloqs Co-Founder Alejandro Parra-Mussell will guide you on a tour of the UK's first open access factory for makers, before Emil introduces the metalworking space. During the workshop, you will receive a demonstration of the equipment, tools, methods and safety measures required. Emil will then take you through the various procedures before it’s your turn to make your brass pen (engraving is optional). The intimate workshop will be a unique opportunity to learn the trade and create a bespoke pen using high-end machinery with expert guidance alongside the architect himself.
